this is one of the great albums where it shows raw skill from one of the best rappers.

i can't find anything i don't like about the album, so it's a 10.

"you know i'm lookin nothin like ya poppa/
i wouldn't give a chick 10 cents to put cheese on a whoppa"

i always laugh at that.

this album is dangerous

cant call it a classic w/o it being a 10

big l is 10 on the album
maybe I am being too critical but I think the beats could have been stepped up on a few tracks

but I bump it all the time, guess I am being hard on the album

fuck must be the flu (b.t.p.f.r.)

This cd is truly amazing, especially lyrically. However I can't enjoy it as much as I did a few years ago. I think I'd prefer the 'new' beats over the raw 'old' ones.

Still this cd is really amazing! 9/10

10. Fucking classic, one of my favourite albums. L's lyrics are shit hot.

"on the shelf is where your LP cold stood, because it was no good, that shit ain't even go wood"

Just one of the first lines that comes to my head.

Brilliant album. Rest In Peace Big L.

The beats ain't wack at all, thats that 95 shit right there, even though this is a real good cd, i ain't all that classic. His punch lines and lyrics is great, he just never had the time to become a true songwriter. Freestlye abilities was wild but when it came to make'in solid songs, L wasn't that great. Alot of hooks are bad, like fed up wit the bull shit, got some bad closers, and doesn't spit a story song until his second cd. Overall this is real good cd, and L was was the definition of hardcore mc, but don't put this cd up wit illmatic, supreme clientel, cuban links, ready to die, liquid swords, resurection, paid in full, or any other true classics.

Nice album. I'd give it an 8/10. Big L is one of the most overrated of all time, but I give him credit for the huge influence he had on so many after him. He was nice though. Just nothing special is all. But a solid album no doubt.

Thats a damn good list, and I'd probably agree with a fair bit of it. Some, ehhh, not really, but they arent wack MCs. Others I havent heard of.

Good to see J-Live get some love

06-28-2007, 07:15 AM
Word. Seeing J-Live perform live a couple of years back really made me realise what a top notch mc he is. Definitely top 50 for me.

I just made that list up to reply to your post, by going through my cd collection and picking out everybody I considered to be a particularly good mc. There's a few mc's in it who I'm not really much into, but still consider to be particularly talented.

Haven't heard of him, and yeah, I've heard of but not really listened to moreso.

Haven't heard of Treach though, never heard K-Rino (I'm bout to feel the hate haha), or Buckshot.

I probably have and just haven't realised, but yeah, never bought any of their albums.

-devil's son
-clinic (aka should've worn a rubber)
-school days
-times is hard on the boulevard
-how will i make it?

also, lord finesse - "yes you may remix" and "you know what i'm about (original version)" are big l classics. you can find those on finesse's newer version of the "crates to the files" compilation. the freestyle history comps are possibly big l at his best, you can hear much rawer versions of a bunch of the verses from the lifestyles album.

Treach is the main guy in Naughty By Nature. If you wanna hear why I'd put him in my list then check out their first 2 albums, if you haven't already. K-Rino is an underground mc from the south. Not many people know of him.

But yeah, you're also missing out on a lot of great shit if you haven't checked out any De La Soul or Blackmoon.

Big L was one of the best rappers to touch the mic. It's a shame he never got a chance to shine. This is is first album, which didn't sell well and wasn't promoted heavily because of Big L's controversial single 'Devil's Son' which came out months before Lifestylez dropped. Big L was shot and killed only blocks from his harlem home. He was killed while in the middle of production of his second album, 'The Big Picture.' Many people forget that his second album was only half done when he was killed, his friends had to fill in the rest with old tapes he had etc. If you guys don't have these albums, then download them with the links below. Don't sleep on that archives shit either.
